All referrals are made by completing a SCS referral form which can be found on the access community trust website under Housing/Fife centre tab for agencies and people wishing to refer out of area. Local referrals can be made at the Marina Centre in Lowestoft, (council office) or Bridgeview. Referrals can be made at the Fife Centre prior to booking an appointment. Initial assessments and risk assessments will then be carried out to assess need and suitability.
Phone Mon-Fri 10am-5pm for application form, completed by applicant and agency before interview. Need 2 proofs of ID, eg passport, bank statement, birth certificate, NI card, letter from GP/agency, and background information.
Phone Mon-Fri 8.30am-8pm. Application form completed by referral agency and prospective resident prior to interview. Require proof of ID and 2 references. Additional information, e.g. YOT/probation reports, may also be required.
The most common way to refer is via the Inform website (administered by the city council). If it is a self-referral, or the referring agency does not have access to Inform, they can contact Railway House for an application form. Suitable applicants will be invited for interview, and may bring the referrer/support worker or friend with them.
